I'm 22, on very low income and disability benefits, and I'm about to apply at my local college for a part-time Access to Higher Education course in health science.
I was under the impression that those on low-income, disabled or 16-23 get a reduced fee for any FE course. Yet the financing department at the college told me that everything has changed this year and the 24+ loan has been moved down to include those 19 and over and constitute a loan which is re-payable when you finish the course, or eradicated when you finish a bachelors degree.
Has anyone else heard about this? I've tried searching online and I can't find anything about this change.

I know there's a 19+ learners loan. But it's a new thing and not something I know anything about, sorry.
Your college should have more information.
